Goin Back to Cali

You can't blame the little guy for wanting to head south to warmer weather, especially when it wasn't his intention to hitch a ride to Toronto in the back of a truck anyway. Problem is no one will take him. Any other animal and it wouldn't be an issue, but for this smelly stowaway going back to Cali is proving a tough challenge. A one-way ticket could cost as much as US$6,000.

Though he appears friendly, the Toronto Wildlife Centre can't release the skunk because he could spread disease, but getting him across the border might be a huge problem too. Let's hope some big-hearted Torontonians come to his rescue. Anyone headed to Lalaland?
